How to protect yourself from spiritual destruction
February 6, 2013
Be angry and do not sin; do not let the sun go down on your anger, and give no opportunity to the devil.
I knew a man named Newt who lived in a small town in Oklahoma. Newt owned a drugstore in town and he was also an avid hunter. So one day, Newt bought a new hunting dog that wasn’t quite trained yet. He took the dog out on a cold, icy morning for a duck hunt with friends. They got to the pond where they were going to hunt, but were disappointed to find the pond was frozen over.
Newt had an idea. He had some dynamite in the back of his truck. So he lit it and threw it out on the ice to break it up. The only problem was that his brand new dog went out there on the ice, grabbed that stick of dynamite in his mouth, and started coming back towards them. They took cover, but the dog jumped in the truck with the stick of dynamite and blew it all to smithereens!
Just like that dog, the enemy has no regard for your well-being. All he does is introduce destruction into your life when you face areas of spiritual dynamite that can cause you harm.
So before you step into a potentially spiritually harmful situation, be aware of his tactics and keep him at a distance. Protect yourself from destruction by keeping that dog away from the spiritual dynamite in your life.
DON’T LET THE ENEMY TAG ALONG IN SPIRITUALLY HARMFUL SITUATIONS. KEEP HIM AWAY BY WALKING IN THE SPIRIT AND YOU’LL AVOID SPIRITUAL DESTRUCTION IN YOUR LIFE.

While many pastors shy away from addressing controversial issues, I sincerely believe you need to hear straight, “bulls-eye” biblical teaching on many of today’s hot topics. Not only to grow in your faith as a believer, but to give winsome, compassionate answers to the hard questions our culture is asking.
